Ending the Sick Daze and Cake Baking

Hey! Well, Jimmy and I are finally starting to feel better since our sick daze last week. Yay! I ended up at the doctor earlier this week and was diagnosed with a sinus infection.

I had a feeling that would be the case, as similar to last time I had a sinus infection, my teeth hurt every time I did anything that would shake my body or head (apparently, your sinuses can press on your oral cavity if they’re swollen…lol). Thankfully, I was able to get some antibiotics and am on the mend.

Jimmy and I were talking about how thankful we are that we live in a country where we can simply go to the doctor and get medicine. From the time I went to the doctor to when I was taking my first dose of antibiotics was only a few hours. What a blessing.

I’ve been spending the week working (pet sitting and real estate work/photography) and wedding cake baking! Surprisingly, I don’t have a lot of pictures from the week. I have one from pet sitting and one from Starbucks.

It turns out Starbucks has pretty tasty smoothies! The one I had was chocolate and banana flavored.

While I didn’t take a lot of pictures, I did film two vlogs. In one week! Crazy.

The first one was completely random. I was a total sick zombie and had awkward encounters with the people who replaced our gutters. I’m so glad we had our gutters and fascia replaced! It makes such a difference in the look of our house ๐Ÿ™‚

I filmed the wedding cake baking vlog on Thursday, and was starting to feel better and less zombie-ish. I’m getting nervous for the big baking day!

Well, I’m going to get going. I have a busy weekend ahead! I’m excited for Saturday because I’m going to a ladies lunch at our church. It’s always such a fun time of fellowship and great food.

What are you doing this weekend?

Sick Daze

Whew, it feels like it has been a while since I last posted. Jimmy and I both came down with a cold on Wednesday and have been pretty miserable since then.

It’s just your classic head cold: sneezing, runny nose, sore throat, fatigue, and that foggy feeling. Thankfully we haven’t had fevers (at least I don’t think?!), so I don’t think it’s the flu. We’re just in a sick daze.

We’ve never been sick at the same time, so we’re kind of enjoying being in the trenches together. I told Jimmy the other night that there’s no one else I’d rather be sick with than him ๐Ÿ™‚

We even went on a little “date” to Walgreens to get medicine, cough drops, and other necessities (aka chocolate!). It has been a little rough figuring out what medicine is safe to take during pregnancy and I kind of miss being able to take Nyquil at night, haha.

I’m hoping we’re on the upswing now. I felt okay enough to do same baking today. That has to be a good sign, right?! I made chocolate cherry challah from this cookbookย and highly recommend it.

The pets have been giving us lots of love and attention. I really feel like Malcolm knows when we don’t feel well because he sleeps on top of us when we nap and is extra snuggly. So sweet. Mavis and Lola stand by the couch, and Mavis puts her head in my hand and stares deeply into my eyes. She’s something else.

Well, I’m going to close out this post and stop talking about being sick! I’m actually looking for a birthday gift for my sister-in-law. She loves cats, dogs, coffee, and Penn State. If anyone has any gift ideas, send them my way!

How do you treat the common cold?
